EVENT SUMMARY

This will be a useful early season ride that will enable riders to gauge their fitness level as they cycle around 150km through Wiltshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire with about 1400 metres of climbing. The route has been carefully selected to keep the riders interested and challenged by their surroundings, on decent road surfaces and with minimal traffic.

Sponsorship raised from this event will be donated to WaterAid (funds will be used to provide clean and safe water to those who most need it).
